8:15 am
8:16 am
we had showers that died out for awhile, are regenerating in spots. i already have it zoomed in, because this is really the only part of the state in north carolina that has showers going on now, and the ones that were kind of tiny, but fairly strong showers over eastern dublin county a little earlier have moved mainly become intense enough in a couple spots now to end up with some lightning strikes showing up. you can see a couple of shows popping up in spots. most of that is just about outside of our viewing area now. as we go through the day, the part of our viewing area that has the chance to see a few showers or storms pop up on occasion is mainly in the southern third or maybe even quarter, mainly south from about fayetteville to goldsboro. we have few clouds in some
8:17 am
sky. you can see a mix of both of those on our tower cam, which is located in southeastern wake county, and looking back toward the northwest. 71 at the raleigh durham airport with partly cloudy skies now, a north, northeast wind at 3 miles per hour, dew point at 65, pressure of 30.15 inches and heading up. our temperatures range from mid- 6 0s up near the virginia border to low and mid- 70s in the south. fayetteville and clinton both at 74 degrees this hour. we look at satellite and radar last 24 hours, we see associated with the front. just about parked over southeastern parts of the state at this point. we've got high pressure extending into central and western north carolina to start the day and probably through the day to keep things mainly dry there. but over the southeastern areas, the front will be stalling and kind of washing out over the next couple days. it may serve as a bit of a focus for some occasional shower and thunderstorm activity. here we go into midday with generally more sun to the north and west, more clouds to the southeast. during the afternoon and
8:18 am
widely scattered showers or storms over southern north carolina. overnight tonight, we'll call it fair to partly cloudy. tomorrow we'll have the better chances of showers and storms forming to the south. a lot of us missing out tomorrow. maybe a couple stray showers and storms popping up in the mountains. around the triangle area, only about a 15% chance today, down to 10 next couple days. bounces up to about 30% on thursday. that's when our next front approaches the area. for today, we're looking for a high around 86 we should be about 80 degrees at lunch time with partly sunny skies by 3 or 4:00, up to 86. if you're out into the evening hours, partly cloudy and back down to about 77. 88 tomorrow, and then a couple days where we hit up around 90 degrees, on wednesday and thursday. should be mostly cloudy on wednesday, and then partly sunny on thursday. we'll have a chance at a passing shower or thunderstorm. and then probably a little cooler again for friday with highs in the 80s. does look like it will end up kind of warm for the
8:19 am
showers or storms as with finish things out on sunday. back to you. . good monday morning for you. the broncos straight up abused cam newton on thursday, and now the panthers could be the ones paying the price. the nfl's player's association will initiate a compliance investigation into the way the team handled newton after a couple particularly dangerous this one was flagged for roughing the quarterback, but newton did take at least 3 other helmet-to-helmet shots. coach rivera told us thursday both the team doctor and unaffiliated neurological consultant cleared cam to continue then.
8:20 am

8:23 am
that 1st loss. . i think they're just taking the mistakes that were made there, have short-term memory, forget about the loss, and -- >> what's your take on the panthers and a possible fine for allowing cam knewton to keep playing despite several helmet to helmet tackles. >> he's their franchise quarterback, so i understand why they wanted to keep him out. i understand that. with the rules, it is only franchise player. so i think it's kind of fair if they do assess a fine. again, this is one of those things it would be a mistake, get it out of the way early in is season. go ahead for the -- better result this is year. >> latasha miles talking sports. and for men and women in relationships, everything involved. thank you so much. >> thanks for having many. well hillary clinton cancels several campaign stops.

8:47 am
what they used but pipe in the space shuttle to wake all the astronauts up. >> on their play list. some folks not too far from where their picture is coming from have been woken up by thunder and lightning. we'll take a look at the radar across the region. we'll quickly hear and show you where that is happening. not in our part of the state. really just a little south and east of our viewing area for the most part in duplin county, there are a couple showers and storms near the county line, a little to the south there. mainly over toward jones county and the newburn area. you can see a lot of thunder and lightning going on with this fairly compact storm. it will continue to drift toward the east, and being john rated in part by the frontal boundary that's still stall over southeastern parts of north carolina. behind that front, our area has 71, same thing here at the station in raleigh. holly springs at about 70, as is -- and we've got 71 at the raleigh durham airport as well. there are 60s to the north, 68 for rocksboro, a degree cooler for south hill.
8:48 am
and more muggy. 74 in fayetteville, 75 degrees for goldsboro, and those areas still have dew points in the upper 60s to low 7 0s. so pretty humid down that way. but not so much up toward the virginia line. 60 the dew point in south hill, 61 for rocksboro. looks like a lot of news the northern parts of the viewing area today will be a little bit cooler, little less humid than we were over the weekend. we did have a front move through during the last 24 hours. you can see that band of cloud cover, some shower activity from time to time parts of the state now. that's where we'll center the best chance of some scattered shower and thunderstorm activity off and on through the day. looking at the tropics, we've got a disturbance near the bahamas that's only given about a 10% chance or so to become anything more organized. there's a fairly organized system, though, out in the eastern atlanta, and that one has a decent chance of becoming a tropical storm perhaps later on today. it's given about a 90% chance of becoming a tropical cyclone by the national
8:49 am
confidence that it stays well out to sea and never really becomes a threat to the u.s. we take a look at future cast, and you can see, as we go through the course of the day, we expect here in the afternoon to see a few widely scattered showers or thunderstorms, most of those south and east of about fayetteville to goldsboro. looks like farther north we'll have a mix of sun and clouds. overnight, fair to partly cloudy skies. tomorrow, any showers and storms, few and far between. most of those will be down to the south or perhaps back to the mountains of state. for today, we'll have a mix of sun and clouds, about 80 at lunch time, 86 by 3 or 4:00. during the evening, falling to the upper 7 0s. most any showers or storms well to the south. tomorrow a high of 88. on wednesday, we're getting up to about 90 degrees again. we're not done with some heat across the area. that's about 7 degrees above our marral. still well below the old record of 98 from 1897, and we'll bounce back to about 90 still on thursday with a few showers or storms.
8:50 am
and that takes us down to 84 for a high -- moving on to brian now who's got some updates on traffic for us. >> we've got a smattering of crashes around primarily the raleigh area, as you can see. we just heard about one in the last few minutes in apex on highway 55. i'll zoom into the area in question here. this is highway 55, loveton road, right near u.s. 1. you can see the red on highway 55 near the -- the sensors are showing sl there is on 55 through apex. trying to get more information on that crash and who's involved and who how it happened. but be myself if you're heading in that direction of some slow downs. and here's a look at some other accidents around the raleigh area, not causing any significant delays there. but take a look at i-540 and falls some noos. things are looking better there than they were a while ago.
8:51 am
